Abstract: Cephalometric parameters represent an excellent method to compare the postoperative outcome. Standard skull base procedures need to be adapted carefully to the individual form of craniosynostosis to avoid an unfavourable result. Single Photon Emissin Computed Tomography (SPECT) studies give evidence that correction of single cranial suture synostosis allows for normalization of cerebral blood flow and should be performed within first 6-8 months of life.
